I think I'm going to be an outlier on this one. As the spouse of a military veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan (OIF/OEF), I am more than familiar with the veteran's response to combat and reintegration. I also have twelve credits left to complete three BS in Psychology degrees in Crisis Counseling, Military Resilience and Addiction and Recovery (see the correlation here?). I think I have a more informed opinion on the themes in this book than the average person. I'm not tooting my

This one slipped at little towards the end...

Ashton and Brighton have been friends for most of their lives...falling in love just seemed like a natural progression in their relationship. Ashton protected Brighton and along with his Aunt Petey gave Brighton a place to feel safe and loved when he first came out to his parents. When Ashton enlisted in the military Brighton was always there waiting for him to come home on leave...waiting for him to come home after his final mission and the end of

Lovers separated by fate then kept apart because of a misunderstanding, only describes a very small part of the heartache Ash and Brighton go through in this emotional story – and it’s a very inaccurate description at that. So I’ll try to do better: Ash and Brighton are soul mates who met when they were twelve, they were separated when Ash became an Army Ranger and was taken prisoner, and when Ash finally gets back, physically and mentally broken, he sees Brighton with another man and a little g ...more

Two shirtless men are standing with foreheads touching in upper half of the photo. Lower area fades to a small town main street type scene. Average font, Neutral colors. Overall, there's nothing to really catch and keep the eye, but the composition is clean and well-arranged. The synopsis made me want to read it.

Sigh….. I’ve never read a single Andrew Grey book I didn’t love.. especially when he writes hot guys with kids. I’m a sucker for that.. This one, was no different, although I wanted to “lovingly” throat punch these two a couple of times.

See, we get a heartbreaking beginning when war hero, Ash comes back from his last mission a LOT longer than he was supposed to be gone for. Having been taken prisoner and held for months and spending the rest of the time recuperating in rehabs and hospitals; the

I really enjoyed this heartbreaking read. PTSD is such a huge illness hat affects a lot of our military men. The sad thing is not everyone seeks help for it and not everyone knows how to help with it. Unfortunately PTSD can cause flashbacks, nightmares, and many other things. Those who experience it definitely feel he change in themselves and they way they are affected by it. This is a story that was beautifully written by Andrew Grey that shows just how PTSD can affect not only the person sudfe ...more

Tams gives this one 4 Stars...

Ashton and Brighton have always been the one constant in each others otherwise frantic lives. Their promise to each other while unspoken was one meant to be forever. But war and miscommunication threaten to derail the destiny they both so desperately need.

Brighton anxiously awaits Ash's return home from the war, but the reunion he expects is not the one he gets. Instead, he's left heartbroken. And then an accident leaves him the guardian of his young niece, which i

*Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by Dreamspinner Press for my reading pleasure in hopes of an unbiased opinion, a review was not a requirement.*

Never Let You Go is Book 2 in Andrew Grey's Forever Yours series. This book could probably be read as a standalone, but the characters from the first book make an appearance in this one. And, really, I always recommend reading the books in a series in the appropriate order. For me, I think you get more from the stories when you know the history and co

“Never Let You Go” is a book of surprises. I was actually shocked at a couple of points in this story.
Brighton and his lover were spilt up when Ash went away to war. While Ash was away, Brighton was named the guardian of a little girlI can’t imagine anything more heartbreaking than thinking your soumate is dead only to find out that he is not only alive but living in the same town. Brighton loves Violet and is determined to give her the home she deserves.
Meanwhile, Ash was captured and tortured

Matters Of the Heart Matter

Two very flawed MCs, Brighton and Ash, meet at age 12, become lovers as teenagers, separate when Ash goes into the military, reunite when he comes home prior to his final deployment--and then he appears to have been killed but it's never been confirmed.

That's enough to break Brighton's heart and send him into a self-induced romantic coma while, in truth, Ash has been captured, tortured, rescued, released and treated for PTSD.

But when Ash finally returns to their small

Never Let You Go is a beautiful romance filled with angst.
Ash came home from a mission where he had been tortured and all that kept him going was thoughts of his Aunt and lover Brighton. When he got home his dream fell apart.
Audio Review
Brighton had been waiting for months for Ash to come home but he never did. He thought there was no one came back. Then his sister dies and he becomes a father. This gives him something to help take his mind off Ash a little.

This is a poignant story full of angst

My heart just broke for Ash after all he had been through took a lot out of him and staying away for a year trying to come to terms about how life may go. Not having Ash in Brighton life just tugged at my heart I left so bad for him thinking one and finding out that was true to GPO through what he went through hurt but to have Ash back in his life is a blessing and they found there happy ending

Love kids

I always enjoy love stories that have children as a central focus. This story was such a great depiction of a soldier dealing with PTSD and how that affects the entire family unit. The addition of how they dealt with romance, while raising an inquisitive child was handled excellently. The inclusion of George and Justin from the first book in the series was great.

Never let you go

Ash and Brighten have known each other since they were kids. Love that's meant to be always comes back together. Book 2 in Andrews new is just as good as the first.

Turning life around

This story is romantic, a bit tense, totally a page turner that I recommend to anyone who loves a good second chance romance.

I like this series, especially his approach at problems and topics treated. Like for Ashton PTSD and all problems at it connected, and his interweaving with his painful past. A mystery that was only in Ashton's mind...but Brighton was there, every step: Their love never forgetten.

I liked the first book, but something about Ash and Brighton didn't sit well with me. Especially the way Ash judging Brighton without talking to him first. And Brighton is no better than Ash, imo, Brighton is whiny and less understanding than he should be as a soul mate.
When you've waited for so long for your loved one to come home, after he had been captivated in a war zone, you should be more patient. Not Brighton though. I don't know, to me, he should be the one who apologized to Ash, not th
